The results are in and FNC’s Mediabuzz with Howard Kurtz is beating the pants off MSNBC and CNN in the same time slot, according to Nielsen ratings.

Marking its one-year anniversary, the show delivered its second-highest demo on Sunday with 327,000 viewers and nearly 1 million in total viewers (963,000 in P2+), beating both MSNBC and CNN in the 11AM/ET time slot.

CNN’s Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter, meanwhile, which landed an exclusive with NBC’s Chuck Todd to discuss his new role as moderator of Meet the Press, delivered a measly 132,000 in the key demo (the coveted viewers ages 25-54) and 614,000 in total viewers. This is down 25 percent in the demo from the week prior while FNC’s MediaBuzz is up 45 percent in the demo.

MediaBuzz is fairing well in one year’s time. It’s up triple-digits, 146 percent in the key demo and nearly 15 percent in total viewers. During that same time period, CNN’s Reliable Sources is down 20 percent in the demo.
